GOVERNMENT MUST FORFEIT SALARIES & ALLOWANCES OF ALL APPOINTEES SINCE WE ARE NOT IN NORMAL TIMES
Are we in normal times? the answer is no! An imported commodity from Norway is making Ghanaians to live abnormal lives.
Government officials now cover their hands and faces when doing their legitimate work and so is every Ghanaian nowadays. Social distancing and home bound has now become our closest friend & is depriving the vulnerable of their livelihood. But government officials are still living their normal lives of receiving their fat salaries and their allowances. When a Home is in crisis who makes the greatest sacrifice to combat the situation. The Father or the Children?
If indeed we are not in normal times abnormal things are done so government must begin to do the abnormal thing by sacrificing their comfort ( Allowances & Salaries) to the comfort of the citizenry. Government must therefore withhold the salaries & allowances of it’s appointees and make it available to cushion the vulnerable before it shutdown the country.
Fighting Covid-19 is a shared responsibility with government leading and making the most sacrifices in the fight.
We shall overcome!
This one too shall pass!
